Bioactive Menopausal Gonadotropin, Human (hMG) is produced from a sterile preparation of urine of post-menopausal women. The hMG is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
hMG, also known as menotropin, is a combination of FSH and LH in a 1:1 ratio that is extracted from urine obtained from postmenopausal women. Urine of postmenopausal women reflects the hypergonadotropic state of menopause where levels of FSH and LH are high.
Free of: HbsAg, Hepatitis B surface antigen and antibodies to HIV, Hepatitis C and HIV.
The hMG was lyophilized from a concentrated (1 mg/ml) solution with no additives.
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized hMG in sterile 18MΩ-cm H2O not less than 100 µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
100 IU/mg of follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and 100 IU/mg luteinizing hormone (LH).
Ships at ambient temperature. Upon receipt, store the product at the temperature recommended below.
Lyophilized hMG, although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution, hMG should be stored at 4°C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18°C. For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA). Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
